Trump says that one of America's greatest accomplishments is the 'abolition of civil rights'

Trump says at National Prayer Breakfast that one of America's greatest accomplishments is the ‘abolition of civil rights’

Donald Trump has accidentally told an audience of global religious leaders that America’s greatest accomplishments include the “abolition of civil rights” during the National Prayer Breakfast.

“Since the founding of our nation, many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer,” the president said on Thursday. “When we open our hearts to faith we fill our hearts with love.”

The president attended the breakfast in Washington, where speakers addressed the level of division in the country and what one described as a “fracturing of the American family”.

The annual gathering brought together members of the president’s cabinet and members of congress, including Democratic house speaker Nancy Pelosi. Among those delivering readings on Thursday was Michael Curry, a reverend who made headlines around the world with his stirring sermon about the power of love at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

2. He has his words confused -- again

Although he said "abolition," he probably mean something like "establishment." Dementia

3. His base will now love him more than ever for two reasons:

1. He said what they believe.

2. Even if it was the wrong choice of words, they don't care. Their vocabulary doesn't go beyond 4th grade.

5. Oh but this MUST be on purpose...

Didn't he just say yesterday that he wasn't an "idiot" like Joe Biden and that his mistakes were always on purpose??

7. He even surpasses himself with this ugly peek at his inner The Donald.

Classic late-night inspiration.
